Several LGBT White House staffers got together to make an It Gets Better video. President Obama and Vice President have also both done videos to encourage LGBT kids that things do eventually get better.

This is a great entry to the IGB collective of videos. I've met quite a few of the folks featured and for all of the questioning of Obama's commitment to LGBT rights, they are some of the most dedicated advocates we could ask for. They bring LGBT issues to the White House daily.

And they're living proof that it does indeed get better.

Thanks so much for posting this video and the goosebumps I have right now are because I remember how it used to be and how much better it is today.

Anyone who speaks out on our behalf deserves a measure of gratitude. If nothing else it teach those who feel they can not It Get's Better and there are places where we can and are accepted.

Thank you Bil!

Bil, I agree! It was great seeing people who share our struggle and fight for justice who are our voice in the White House.

It was great to see Brian, Jeff, Greg and others share with others that life does get better.

I was struck by the remarkable diversity of the people in the video. It would have been noteworthy on its own, but in combination with them also being gay makes a great statement.

I seriously doubt "diverse" commentary will be allowed here. What a double standard. Think about it. "Acceptance, understanding, open-mindedness" are not a one-way street.

I would write more, but I seriously doubt this will be allowed to appear as it is, and certainly will be axed if I submit my thoughts on IGB.
